The political foes will appear in an opening sketch for the awards show. As for what they’re going to joke about, that’s being kept under wraps. But presumably it will involve a couple of barbs thrown at each other and maybe even a self-deprecating comment or two.
This isn’t the first time the CMT Music Awards has secured high-powered politicians for an appearance. In 2008, they grabbed John McCain, Hillary Clinton and Obama, each as they were trying to secure votes on the way to the White House.
